From Bit-Tech:

A good power supply has always been a component that's recommended by ourselves and those who frequent our forums. Everyone has their personal favourites, and a brand name may arguably count for more here than on any other component.

With the ever increasing need for power as technology development rampages onwards (especially if you're an avid overclocker or a gamer using SLI or CrossFire), then an efficient and solid power supply is an absolutely essential part to getting the most out of your system, without unnecessarily wasting money.

The standard, if somewhat uneducated trick to determining if a power supply is worth having is by simply judging its weight; where the heavier the better, is the general consensus. However while that is true to a certain degree, other factors like adequate cooling without being too noisy, an efficient Power Factor Correction (PFC) and reliable power rails, are the fundamental differences between PSUs.

The group test is here.
